"How did it come to pass that an opposition's measure of a president's foreign policy was all or nothing, success or "failure"? The answer is that the political absolutism now normal in Washington arrived at the moment--Nov. 7, 2000--that our politics subordinated even a war against terror to seizing the office of the presidency." - Daniel Henninger - WSJ 11/18/05

Hart joins Peña in battle (supporting persons residing unlawfully)

Another guy that wanted to be our president but liked Rice in his pants too much.

You will note that one of Hart's areas of "expertise" is foreign policy and that he considers "illegal immigration (a) problem (that) affects the international community and cannot be fixed in Colorado." An international man in the mold of JFK2Not. How about it being a state's right?

Oh, and don't doubt Gary...he's real smart...he's working on his 17th book right now...

Is there a point to being a citizen of this country? I don't see that it makes a difference.

From the Rocky Mountain News:

Former U.S. senator and presidential candidate Gary Hart has joined former Denver Mayor Federico Peña in the fight against efforts to deny services to illegal immigrants.

The Democrat, 69, issued a statement Monday on behalf of Keep Colorado Safe. The group, headed by Peña, is opposing the move to prohibit illegal immigrants in Colorado from receiving all taxpayer-funded public services except those required by the federal government.

"I would like to see this state lead in bringing sanity and reason to this issue, not pouring gasoline on a fire," he said Monday.

Hart, a congressman from 1975 to 1987, is an authority on foreign policy, the environment and national security. He is finishing his 17th book and will soon begin teaching at the University of Colorado at Denver.

Hart emphasized that the illegal immigration problem affects the international community and cannot be fixed in Colorado.

He said a special session of the state legislature on the issue is "unneccesary."

"I don't see what it solves. Both sides will score some political points or try to, and we won't be any farther down the road."

The press release link below announces the Colorado Supreme Court's denial of initiative 55 on the November ballot. The press release makes no mention of "illegal aliens" as the preferred term for this group is "persons residing in Colorado unlawfully."

Keep Colorado Safe June 12, 2006 Press Release:

Denver, CO – The Colorado State Supreme Court today ruled against placing on the ballot Initiative 55, which would have denied state and local services to thousands of individuals and jeopardized the state’s fiscal welfare. The court ruled Initiative 55 violates the state’s single subject rule, which requires that the language of a proposed ballot measure be confined to a single subject, sparing Coloradans from voting on the misguided proposal....(more)
